Internet Explorer is not supported by Design Library

The last version of Internet Explorer, version 11, was released on October 17, 2013. This is a very long time ago when taking into account the rapid development of web technologies. These days it is often difficult and time consuming to get modern technologies to work well in this old browser. More and more frameworks are dropping support, and even Microsoft themselves has announced that they will fully drop support for IE in their own services in 2021.

Consequently, we have decided to not include support for IE in the Design Library website.

Luckily, there are modern options in active development. Please use Firefox, Edge or Chrome instead.


The general tone of the images is calm and elegant. Beautiful ingredients such as natural materials, unfeigned people, classic furniture and architecture create simple and tasteful situations and environments.


To understand the idea behind imagery, go to SEB visual guidelines

The image library expands every month so give that a try first. If you still can't find an image that portaits what you want, look look in generic image banks online. Aim for it to comply with SEB's tone.

Do's and dont's

  • Use images to support the content. It should add something!
  • Always use "title" and "alt-text" for accessibility reasons


  • Avoid a collage with small images, go big! Combine it with a text
  • Avoid having text edited in on the image. Use html-text!


Imagery at SEB

  • Non-saturated colours create a sophisticated and thoughtful expression and the camera position leaves space for interpretation. We create interesting and exciting compositions by mixing conventional solutions with more unexpected angles.
  • Blackness enhances contrast and contributes to a powerful expression. The compositions have clear lines and focal points. The central objects are unthreatened by competing elements.
  • The light in our images is natural and soft creating smooth shadows. The contrast is high creating a dramatic blackness in the dark areas.
  • The colours are desaturated, neutral and natural giving a sophisticated and authentic impression.
